[mkgmap-dev] Shouldn't both options --gmapi and --nsis imply --tdbfile?From Ticker Berkin rwb-mkgmap at jagit.co.uk on Tue Feb 5 08:54:07 GMT 2019
Hi I think it is reasonable that mkgmap, when explicitly being used to generate GMAPSUPP.IMG doesn't generate PC files unless other options imply that a PC image is also wanted - it does take extra time and a lot of memory. Options --gmapi or --tdbfile imply PC files are wanted and should cause generation of PC indexes if --index is on. My thoughts on the default values of options: When new features are introduced, they should be OFF by default - experts who follow the development can turn them on if they want to experiment. A while later, when the feature has settled down and is thought to be generally good, the default should be changed to ON. Some candidates for now being ON by default --gmapsupp --index --location-autofill=is_in,nearest --route --add-pois-to-area --link-pois-to-ways --process-exits --process-destination --remove-ovm-work-files maybe also --check_roundabout*, but I'm not sure of the default values for these and the help text doesn't say About now would be the time for changing: --add-boundary-nodes-at-admin-boundaries= from 0 to 2 Regards Ticker On Mon, 2019-02-04 at 18:12 -0500, EthnicFood IsGreat wrote: > > > > Message: 1 > > Date: Sun, 03 Feb 2019 09:15:33 -0500 > > From: Greg Troxel <gdt at lexort.com> > > To: Gerd Petermann <GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com> > > Cc: "mkgmap-dev at lists.mkgmap.org.uk" < > > mkgmap-dev at lists.mkgmap.org.uk> > > Subject: Re: [mkgmap-dev] Shouldn't both options --gmapi and --nsis > > imply --tdbfile? > > > > > > Gerd Petermann <GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com> writes: > > > > > I never understood why adding option --gmapsupp suppresses the > > > creation of the pc index file(s).
